ASU Baseball: Sun Devils take series from Washington State, finish third in the Pac-12

The Sun Devils took another step on the road to Omaha by completing the regular season and heading to regionals.

For the 14th time since 2000, the Arizona State baseball team is going dancing. After completing a 33-22 regular season- the 52nd consecutive year in which the program has won 30 games- they will play for the right to go to Omaha once again.

Arizona State was ineligible for postseason play in 2012, but has made it to at least the regional round in every other season this millennium.

The Sun Devils completed their regular season Sunday afternoon with a 6-3 over the Washington State Cougars. They took two of three on the road trip, winning Friday by a 12-8 score, and dropping a 10-7 decision Saturday evening.

Arizona State finishes the 2014 campaign with a 19-11 Pac-12 record, good for third in the conference, four games behind Oregon State. The team finished with eight conference wins, the second-most in school history.

The weekend also notched a few milestones for coach Tim Esmay. Sunday was his 90th conference win and Friday was his 200th win at Arizona State, making him the second-fastest Sun Devil coach to make it to 200 wins. He now has a .685 winning percentage, which is the best among all Pac-12 coaches. Esmay now has 33 conference series victories in his five years as head coach, more than both Jim Brock and Pat Murphy in their first five seasons.

Arizona State will learn its regional opponent and location at 9 a.m. Monday on ESPNU.

At least one player doesn't want to wait that long.
